Quatorze Juillet translates that festive spirit in a span of 5 LED bulbs arrayed along a curved structure in solid brass and available in dual versions Extra Small and Extra Large. Designed by Kristian Gavoille, who was a colleague of design icon Philippe Starck for nearly 10 years, Quatorze brings exuberantly eye-catching style to a room.

Nestled in the Loire Valley, CVL Luminaires first debuted in 1960 and has been handcrafting exquisite lighting pieces in France ever since. Featuring “noble materials” including brass, glass, wood and stainless steel, the company’s autonomy ensures that its products reflect uncompromising quality as well as mindfully sustainable production.
Led by design director Émilie Cathelineau, CVL also collaborates with independent designers like Hervé Langlais, POOL and Kristian Gavoille. In collections ranging from Calé(e) to Saturne, the fixtures reflect a contemporary, and sometimes whimsical, take on classic French epochs like Art Deco. Often glossed with a favorite touch of golden brass, CVL’s offerings define a sense of panache with luxurious materials melded with ever-intriguing forms.
